Paulina Rubio

I May Have Been Arrested ...

But Other Guy Gets Sued

11/18/2012 4:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1118-Paulina-RUbio-tmzThose annoying Progressive car insurance commercials worked on Paulina Rubio -- because that's the insurance company she was using when a guy smashed into her car last year ... and now they are suing that guy for the damage he caused.

As TMZ first reported, Rubio was arrested for disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice after she allegedly cussed out the on-scene officers following the fender bender.

Now the insurance company has filed suit against Alberto Velasquez (aka The Other Driver) in Miami County Court, claiming his "negligent" and "careless" driving caused the June 2011 collision.  

According to the docs, Progressive claims Velasquez was at fault and owes them $8,828.40 -- the amount it shelled out to fix Rubio's ride -- who was under their insurance plan at the time.

A judge has yet to rule.

Never use progressive. They refused to pay on the insurance for a woman who died in a car accident. They even was on the side of the driver who was at fault. They only agreed to pay after it became a big story in the media. Use progressive if u want to get screwed after an accident.

She was the victim yet she managed to get arrested. That tells you the kind of bitchy, self-entitled person she is. No-talent hag.

It's called Subrogation. Insurance companies do it every day. When their client is not at fault for an accident they will go after the responsible party for the cost of repairs.
